I still marvel at how much plot gets tossed into each episode of Alias. Tonight's season premiere did not disappoint in that department: So what to speculate on in the coming episodes: 1. Will has to leave his newspaper job after being portrayed as a heroin junkie who was high when he wrote that SD-6 story. My guess is that Will might be a latent CIA spy down the road, but for now, I think he'll be helping Francie out with her new restaurant. 2. What is Syd's mom up to now that she's walked into the CIA offices and given herself up. Can she be trusted? Jack doesn't think so. Syd is torn. 3. Is Weiss dead? He appear to be shot in the neck, but we don't know. 4. Will Syd and Vaughn hook up or keep it professional? 5. Does Sloan really trust Jack and Syd? It appears that Dixon is beating himself up for not trusting Syd. Anyhow, Lena Olin is a good choice to play Syd's mom, and she's brushed up on her American accent too.
